Women’s rights were forged from steel during World War II, due in part to American graphic artist J. Howard Miller. In support of the war effort, Westinghouse commissioned Miller to create an empowering series to attract women to fill jobs while men were at war, with ultimately six million women working at industrial plants. Miller’s work appeared on magazines, newspapers and posters, and helped increase women’s earning power and acceptance in to male-dominated trades. The U.S. Postal Service recognized the historic significance by including his “rosie the Riveter” image as part of its’ World War II series in 1992.
